Sleek 1954 Ford F-100 Is Ready for Some Halloween Action
With a paintjob crying for attention, and a 347 Stroker under the hood, trick-or-treating will be fun in the hood.
If you haven’t already noticed, Halloween is right around the corner. While most big box stores are already stocking pumpkins and costumes, it’s an even better time to admire a truck fit for collecting sugary treats? A truck like this pumpkin-orange 1954 Ford F-100.
Orange is a hue rarely seen on an early Ford, but the curvy fenders of this timeless classic take quite well to it, we’d say. Somebody did a nice job ensuring all the gaps were tight and there’s nothing distasteful here. Mercifully, they left the chrome up front and stuck with a modest set of timeless 16″ American Racing Wheels.
Even better, this rolling pumpkin is all-Ford. According to the ad, the old F-Series is rocking a 347 stroker under the hood, with a C4 three-speed automatic transmission behind it. With so many Fords of this vintage bastardized by small block Chevy power, we’re certainly grateful for that. The modern mill also sports goodies like Edelbrock Performer aluminum heads and a Quickfuel four-barrel carb.
There’s nothing on the inside of this 1954 F-100 that’ll spook you, either. Just plenty of tasteful tan upholstery. Amid custom door panels and a bench seat, you’ll find modern stuff like a tilt column, Lokar steering wheel, and Dolphin gauges. Even the suspension is a tried-and-true combo of independent front and leaf spring rear.
Overall, this truck’s got just the right combination of tricks and treats without going overboard. You know, like that one guy in your neighborhood that goes a little too far converting his residence into a real house of terror. We prefer to keep it classy, and what better way to do it than in a tastefully done, vintage Ford?
